What a crazy, impetuous day! I was feeling brave and (dare I say it?) a bit reckless. For you see, a lone donkey is a sweet, loving animal. A herd of donkeys however, is a writhing mass of jealousy and selfishness. The herd is ruled by mob mentality. Yet I waded in and achieved my goal. Here are the ……um …awesome results. I hope you enjoy all the donkey hugs!
Mother- daughter team of Sweet Alice and Eva. Sweet Alice has the voice of a foghorn. She thinks it is charming to sing to us very very early in the morning. Eva was born on Christmas Eve, and thus the name.
Cynthia Ann Parker and Tickles are mother and son. Tickles got his name from the fact that he had a very itchy…..rear end when he first arrived.
Lizzy and Tina were my second and third donkeys. They are BFFs. Lizzy is hopefully to become my first cart donkey.
Mother and son : Rosie and Nester. Rosie is such a nice donkey, but a very bad mother. Poor little Nester didn’t have the best childhood. He gets extra hugs though because he is the friendliest to visitors. Nester would make a great therapy donkey.
G.G. and Little Ruthie are another mother-daughter set. Both are just nice, pretty donkeys.
Lolly and Boomer are mother and son. Lolly is a recovering oats addict. Boomer is a bully until he is confronted with new people. He then becomes quite shy and unsure of himself. How typical is that?
Last but not least is Bonnie Lou. Don’t judge Bonnie by her photo, as she is probably the smartest donkey in the herd and one of the prettiest. Like the other donkeys though, Bonnie Lou doesn’t care about impressing others with how great she looks in her pictures. The donkeys make no apologies for their age, their lack of perfection or their need for attention and care from their loved ones. Donkeys are pretty cool people.
